Man Utd legend Robson convinced Ronaldo will stay

Robson told the Daily Star Sunday: "In 1983 I was wanted by three Italian clubs - AC Milan, Sampdoria and Juventus.

"Transfer fees weren't as high then but it would have been a world-record fee - only for United to price me out of a move.

"It was a similar situation to the one Cristiano is in now, in that United wouldn't let me go for what would have been a world-record fee.

"I was happy to stay and I think Ronaldo is happy at the club too. He might have small doubts but I think all the media hype and what has been coming out of Spain has really blown the situation out of proportion.

"And I see Ronaldo, once he is over his ankle operation, being part of the team."
